    recording
    PSW Staff 03/07/12 04:39 PM,
    An interesting “audio related” item we ran across on YouTube today: “This recording of the 2011 Japanese earthquake was taken near the coastline of Japan between Fukushima Daiichi (the nuclear reactor site) and Tokyo. The initial blast of sound is the 9.0 mainshock. “As the earth’s plates slipped dozens of meters into new positions, aftershocks occurred. They are indicated by “pop” noises immediately following the mainshock sound. These plate adjustments will likely continue for years. “Georgia Tech Associate Professor Zhigang… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A group, sometimes called a subgroup, is basically another mix bus that you can send the output of channel faders to. You could say that the Main Left and Right is a group—a stereo group typically. The signal comes into the input channels, the gain is set, it’s EQ’d and finally the output goes through the fader to a group; either the L&R main output—sometimes there’s a Mono option also—or you may have… View this post

    First United Methodist Church of San Diego is the largest Methodist church in southern California and occupies one of the most architecturally-splendid church campuses in the area. Over many decades, First United has struggled with sound reinforcement systems for its multiple venues that somehow always failed to live up to expectations. Recently, Paul Svenson of Sound Casework Inc. (PS Audio Video) reversed the inertia of that sorry history, unifying all five sound systems under a common, easy-to-use, foolproof paradigm centered… View this post

    microphones
    Bruce Bartlett 03/06/12 03:53 PM,
    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   What microphone is best for recording an orchestra? What’s a good snare mic? Should the mic be a condenser or dynamic, omni or cardioid? You can answer these questions more easily once you know the types of microphones and understand their specs. First, it always pays to get a high-quality microphone. The mic is a source of your recorded signal. If that signal is noisy, distorted, or tonally colored, you’ll be stuck… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   The congregation will be the source of your greatest joys. They will be the source of your greatest frustrations. Guess what? That’s the way it should be.  All of your work, from mixing to microphone placement, centers on giving to the congregation. There are two areas of importance when working with (perhaps working for) the congregation: —Meeting expectations—Understanding needs Meeting Expectations The congregation has expectations just like the pastor and the… View this post

    Midas Consoles Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg) reports a healthy first wave of PRO2 and PRO2C sales, with systems going into rental, worship installation, touring and TV production applications. The first PRO2 into the region went to Boerema Geluidstechniek whose owners, Ton Boerema and audio engineer Auke Meijer, decided to invest in a system due to its audio quality and the broad take up of Midas digital. The Free Baptist Church Bethel based in Drachten, NL, has become the… View this post
